782. Morning Running Routine 

Are you trying to get started with running? 

Maybe you don’t know where to start

This running routine is how I built the habit of running most days 

First things first, we need to get into our running clothes. 

I set these things out the night before. Socks, shorts, shirt 

Step 2: Check the mirror / put deodorant on 

Step 3: Get your running gear together 

Ideally, we can put our running gear in the same spot every day so it’s already pre-set the night before. Some things on my running gear list that I use most days: 

  • Heart rate monitor 
  • Gloves/jacket/hat 
  • Running belt 
  • Warm up equipment 

Step 4: warm up (2-5 minutes) through movement

  • IT bads 
  • Hip flexor/quads  
  • hamstrings/ glutes 
  • Calves
  • Groins 
  • Arches 

Use a lacrosse ball for your feet, and a resistance band for all the others. 

Step 5: get your running shoes on 

This is the anchor because once we get our running shoes on, we know what is about to happen 

Step 6: get out of the house

This may be the hardest part, it’s going to feel weird at first but eventually, it’ll be a habit that can’t be broken. 

Step 7: start strava aka RECORD THE RUN! 

This makes it FUN!

These anchors are going to make this running habit easier to become a habit. 

  • Lacing up the shoes, getting out the door, starting strava. 

Step 8: get that run in! 

(And run could be a walk, jog, anything really. Just get them miles.)

Today’s run took 18 minutes or so, about 2 miles. 

Thank you so much for tuning in, I appreciate your attention – share this with someone who needs it! 

Go get your miles
